Opiyo outlined a nine-point agenda that the Azimio La Umoja brigade will push in what appeared to be an anti-Ruto agenda in the declaration.
1. Putting pressure on Ruto's regime
Azimio La Umoja has decided to put President William Ruto's government under intense pressure to keep the promises he made during his campaign.
2. Living Expenses
Beginning in January 2023, the Azimio coalition resolved to put President Ruto under immense pressure in order to force him to reduce the cost of basic comedies.
3. Subsidy for school fees
Raila and his team also resolved to compel Kenya Kwanza to reinstate the school fee subsidies instituted by former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
4. Money Transfer
Azimio is determined to persuade President Ruto to reinstate the cash transfer program known as Pesa ya Wazee.
The Older Persons Cash Transfer Program (OPCT) was a Department of Social Development empowerment initiative.
This initiative was created to help non-pensionable and elderly Kenyans who are not formally employed but are getting older.
5. Placement in the Ranks
The opposition agreed to ensure that President Ruto restores order within the government, particularly within the Cabinet.
The coalition chastised Ruto for allowing members of his cabinet to make illegal roadside declarations.
"These Cabinet Secretaries have been issuing dangerous and incorrect orders," Wandayi stated.
6.Commissioners of the IEBC
Azimio resolved at its first protest rally to put President Ruto under enormous pressure to ensure that the Rule of Law prevails in the reconstitution of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
7. Civil Service Prospects
The coalition agreed to ensure that Ruto restructures his government with a national perspective.
Azimio La Umoja claimed that the civil service is skewed and does not reflect the country's diversity.
Azimio La Umoja made the decision to put pressure on Ruto to resurrect the defunct Kazi Mtaani Project.
Ruto's administration terminated the Kazi Mtaani Project following an assessment report.
9. The Dialogue of the People
Azimio La Umoja resolved to continue the people's dialogue across the country in a statement read by Wandayi.
The coalition also invited supporters to another political rally on December 12, 2022, at Jacaranda Grounds.
The coalition's leadership used the opportunity to rally the country by painting a more hopeful, peaceful, and prosperous future for all.
